The Port Royal Sound Foundation hosted a reception on Aug. 1 in honor of the current exhibition on view in the Rotating Exhibit Room at the Maritime Center at 310 Okatie Highway in Okatie.
“Spartina” is a mixed-media body of work by Beaufort artist and writer Dory Ingram.
It represents a dialogue between two voices, side by side on the gallery walls. “The written narratives speak to the natural cycles that we cannot see at work in the marsh itself, to the secrets that it harbors and the life that it nurtures and protects. The tissue and polymer assemblages speak to the human impact upon the delicate ecosystem of the salt marsh, and to the protection that the marsh requires of us,” according to a release.
“Spartina” will be on view through Wednesday, Aug. 31. Admission is free.
The Maritime Center is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday. For more information, visit portroyalsoundfoundation.org/the-maritime-center.
